After months of rumblings and unconfirmed reports, TMZ is reporting that Evelyn, star of Basketball Wives, and NFL fiancé Chad, have inked a deal with VH1 for a spinoff about their upcoming wedding. You now, the one most people, including me, still don’t believe will ever happen!
Evelyn An insider tells TMZ that Evelyn and Chad will each take home $300,000 for their spinoff, which is scheduled to begin filming in the next couple of weeks. As filming is still ongoing for the current season of Basketball Wives.
Negotiations on the series reportedly ended last week, and VH1 is expected to make an official announcement this week.
Moving on to newbieKenya Bell, aka this season’s Meeka Claxton! More bad news for Kenya as she is not only hated by her costars but her husband too, who just filed for divorce.
TMZ reports former NBA star Charlie Bell has filed for divorce in a Michigan court citing a breakdown in his marriage.
This doesn’t exactly come as a big surprise as Kenya was famously arrested back in May 2011 for attacking Charlie with a box cutter… in front of their children. Classy.
Kenya was ultimately charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence, but was able to avoid jail time by pleading guilty to the lesser charge of misdemeanor domestic violence. A photo of Kenya’s mug shot is below!
A new episode of Basketball Wives airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c and a preview is below as well.

To kick things off right, the ladies are out and about letting everyone know this is definitely a season you don’t want to miss; oh, and all the drama – so not their fault! Discussing this season, Evelyn is once again explaining how things work from her perspective – and interestingly she blames, of all things, Twitter for a lot of the fighting!
Evelyn believes if people just kept their every passing comment to themselves, less people would get hurt. I’m just gonna let this one sink in, being that Evelyn has been called out for her Twitterants on more than one occasion.
“Twitter plays a huge part on ‘Basketball Wives’ because sometimes we may get to Twitter to vent, which is probably not the greatest thing to do,” Evelyn tells Sister2Sister. “I think we all are guilty of probably doing that at some point.”
“Usually it starts up arguments when we’re filming,” she explains.”You’re forced to address certain issues and things that are going on. That’s why, at the reunions, it’s always heated and there’s always arguments because that’s basically when you lay everything on the table.”
Jen agrees that Twitter is certainly the catalyst for a lot of issues. “Twitter seems to cause a lot problems on ‘Basketball Wives,’ so it would be interesting if we didn’t have Twitter to see how that would go,” Jennifer acknowledges.
“There would be a lot less problems,” she admits, especially Tweets of the passive-aggressive nature which then get the followers and fans involved. “It can get little messy, and by the time the reunion rolls around, a lot of stuff has been said on Twitter.”
Evelyn also reveals that the reunions are the most stressful part of the season! “On the reunion there was obvious tension between me and Jennifer,” Evelyn says – particularly because she believed everything was fine with Jen. “I felt tension from her at the reunion and after we wrapped the reunion, she left and didn’t say goodbye to anyone.” And that was pretty much the end of their friendship! Yikes. Yet another example of how reality television and friendship simply don’t mix!
Moving on, Tami Roman doesn’t blame Twitter or anyone else for her issues and when it comes to taking sides, she is squarely on Team Tami. “I kind of mind my business unless it pertains to me,” Tami told VH1′s Big Morning Buzz.
Especially when it comes to Jen and Evelyn! “So I like them both and I’m still friends with them both even though they’re in the middle of conflict,” Tami added.
Tami also let new girls Kenya Bell and Kesha Nichols know they better tow the line! “This is how I operate, let’s try to stay in this format and you’ll be fine,” she told them upon meeting them, mentioning that she still has to get to know them a little better.
And finally, below is a sneak peak of tonight’s premiere episode! All the ladies are in NYC to kick of the season, but they certainly didn’t leave any of the drama behind in Miami!
In the preview, Evelyn is planning her wedding and only her most loyal friends are invited! So I guess that means the cast is off the guest list? Jen also talks about dealing with divorce and the break up with Evelyn – she seems so sad. The video is below! Just a warning: Evelyn’s eyeshadow is horrific!

Whoa drama! VH1 has just released the all new season four trailer for Basketball Wives, and folks, it does not disappoint!
In the five-minute clip below, the ladies offer us screaming matches, table fights and of course bitch slaps! And unfortunately for Jennifer Williams, it appears she is out of the circle, perhaps for good.
We had heard about the falling out between former BFFs Jen and Evelyn Lozada, but in the clip below, it’s pretty clear there is no love lost between the two ladies. Not only does Evelyn repeatedly threaten Jen with violence, but Evelyn’s assistant even goes as far as to slap Jen in one the scenes. Yikes. Jen reportedly filed a police report following that incident.
Also bringing the drama are newbies Kenya Belland Kesha Nichols, as Kenya seems to be the new Meeka Claxton, getting into it with most of the cast, while Kesha attempts to go toe to toe with Tami Roman. Poor Kesha doesn’t stand a chance! The season trailer is below!
No word yet on when we can expect the “You Ain’t About This Life” t-shirts from Ms. Evelyn, but you all know it’s coming!
And speaking of Evelyn, she continues to insist the wedding no one thinks is going to happen will indeed take place. According to TMZ, Evelyn and her NFL fiance Chad Ochocinco’s continue to plan their July wedding.
So can we expect Evelyn to change her name to Mrs. Ochocinco? That answer is no according to TMZ. The reason? Chad is planning to legally change his last name back to the one he was born with before his wedding date. And just in case you forgot what that name was, it is ‘Johnson.’
The new season of Basketball Wives premieres Feb. 20 on VH1.

VH1 has now unveiled the cast of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch! The dating show follows NFL superstar and former Dancing With The Stars alum Chad Ochocinco as he tries to find love amongst 85 women. Yes 85 women.
However Chad, who was romantically linked with his DWTS partner Cheryl Burke earlier this year, will be eliminating majority of those women to get to his final 17 top choices in the premiere episode of the show, which debuts tonight July 11th at 9/8c on VH1.
There was a minor scandal involving Chad and his choice of women that hit the blogs as filming began on the show last month. A contestant on the show and someone working in production alleged that Chad did not want any African American women on his show, and that he wanted “all the black girls to be “cut”, except for 1.”
Chad allegedly wanted to keep the Latina and brunette White girls because he believed they are “better” for him. The producers had to Chad into keeping two black women as part of his final 17.
Chad did deny the claims, stating that “certain girls” were mad they got sent home and that he’s colorblind. Oddly enough, a look at the 17 finalists show only 3 black women.
Also premiering tonight is the second season of Terell Owen’s reality show – The T.O. Show. VH1 promises season 2 will feature TO leaving Buffalo, rocking a wig, possibly rekindling an old flame, all while embracing fatherhood. Also returning are TO’s two longtime friends, Kita Williams and Monique Jackson, to yell at him help him make better life decisions.The new season premieres tonight at at 10:30/9:30c.
